Five RPGs You May Have Missed In 2021


This character-driven, procedurally-generated tactical RPG has received its share of acclaim, but still managed to fly under many people’s radars. Its PC exclusivity could be part of the reason, but it’s worth finding a way to play it, especially if you enjoy table-top role-playing experiences. Just like running your own Dungeons & Dragons campaign, you gear up a team, make decisions that affect their story, and take on hordes of enemies in various turn-based combat setups. While each campaign is self-contained, the cool part of Wildermyth is that you can take characters you develop into subsequent campaigns, complete with all their stats. Our own Dan Tack said it best in his review: “If you’ve always wanted a fantasy Dungeons & Dragons stylized XCOM game, Wildermyth might be exactly what you’re looking for. Designing a game around randomized storytelling is tricky, but Worldwalker pulls this off with gusto and gravitas.” Read the full review here.
